PosterMyWall’s editor offers stickers from free sources and Getty Images. You can filter the results to look at animated and non-animated stickers, as well as premium (Getty) and free stock graphics. 

Free basic users will have to pay an additional two dollars for downloading designs with stickers from Getty Images, otherwise, a large watermark is added to the downloaded design.

Downloads with GettyImages are free on the Premium subscription plans
